“We shall not cease from explorations and the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we started . . . and know the place for the first time.” T.S.Elliot
The Ursuline Center has prepared a portion of its landscape into a sacred walk, modeled after the design found in Chartres Cathedral, France, with adjustments to make it both wheelchair accessible and nestle into the site. The labyrinth’s path is of concrete with areas of stone in between.
The labyrinth is open year-round from dawn to dusk to all persons of faith. There is no charge to come out and use the labyrinth on your own. From April to October each year, we offer free, guided labyrinth walks that follow a theme.
This year’s themes will be based on “The 10 tips from the life of St. Ursula for deepening your friendship with God.” All persons of faith are invited to participate in these free events. Walks generally take 20 minutes to ½ hour.
The Labyrinth Walks from April-October 2017 will be held on Sunday afternoons or Thursday evenings.
